A new online civil case management system is coming soon.
The QCase portal will enable the legal profession, self-represented litigants, and other Magistrates Courts users to securely file, view and manage their civil matters online. It will also be used for Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal (QCAT) minor civil dispute matters heard at Magistrates Courts and in QCAT Brisbane.
QCase will allow users to:
- commence an action by filing initiating documents and supporting documents online.
- electronically file documents relating to existing matters.
- monitor the progress of their matters online.
- review and access sealed electronic versions of filed documents.
There is no administration fee for using QCase, however usual filing fees still apply.
QCase will launch in a staged approach across QCAT Brisbane and Magistrates Courts.
The new QCase portal went live at QCAT Brisbane on 6 March 2023. Find out more information about filing minor civil dispute matters at QCAT Brisbane using QCase.
QCase will be available in Magistrates Courts in 2024. Please refer to the below rollout schedule for locations and dates.
